We all now that particularly government bonds are safe as can be...if you now take a look into the about the middle of the above document you will find a column called "PRICE SPECIFICATION". There is a set of bonds with a maturity date of December 31, 9999 - no joke - the year 9999. Issued by the Portuguese Central Government during WW2 these bonds have now been passed on to the ECB as collateral.
Bonds being paid by in 7987 years being accepted as collateral says everything about the Euro system.

Is it correct that there are 39.385 eligible assets with a maturity date of December 31, 9999 ????
